Look: Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Named Sexiest Man Alive by 'People' Magazine

The star actor and former WWE wrestler wouldn't rule out a run for president next.

Can you smell what The Rock is cooking?

People magazine can, crowning the box-office superstar and former WWE wrestler as the Sexiest Man Alive, describing him as "sweet, smart and sculpted" on the cover.

Take a look.

And a between-the-pages shot:

Ellen DeGeneres helped reveal Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's People cover during a Monday taping of her show, which will be broadcast this afternoon.

But thanks to a leaked clip, we could see Johnson's priceless reaction to the cover right now.

On Tuesday, he also took to his Instagram telling all of his 70 million-plus followers to: "Remember, sexy isn't something you 'try and be.' Sexy happens naturally when you're comfortable just being yourself."

Within the pages of the actual issue, Johnson, 44, also said this about first being notified that he would be the publication's Sexiest Man Alive:

“I said, ‘That’s awesome.’ And then what went through my mind was just how cool and exciting it is,” Johnson said as part of his cover story. “And then I thought, ‘Wow, we’ve pretty much reached the pinnacle.’ I’m not quite too sure where we go from here. I’ve done it all, this is it.”

Yes, Johnson has conquered the world of entertainment — via pro-wrestling and movies — but could a presidential run be next?

Following Donald Trump's shocking election as the 45th U.S. president segueing from reality TV to the Oval Office, The Rock seems intrigued by the possibility.

"I wouldn't rule it out," Johnson said Sunday, as reported by Vanity Fair. "It would be a great opportunity to help people, so it's possible. This past election shows that anything can happen."

Back in March, he even tweeted out a story from a writer about why he should run for president, imagining what it would be like.
